If there is one guitar piece that every guitarist really, really wants to play is a tremolo piece. The best known is Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Remembrances of the Alhambra -the Moorish palace in Granada, Spain). It is one of the few great guitar compositions prior to Barrios Mangore. The world of music is generally divided in Before Bach-After Bach. The world of guitar I divide into Before Barrios-After Barrios . Recuerdos de la Alhambra is a gorgeous piece...Barrios Mangore Una Limosna por el amor de Dios is a masterpiece.
The best rendition
of tremolo I have ever heard is Narciso Yepes. His Deutsche Grammophon
recording of Recuerdos de la Alhambra is simply marvelous. Segovia's tremolo
was also very good. He almost never played tremolos in his concerts though.
This was due to the fact that besides Recuerdos, the other great tremolos
were Mangore's Una Limosna por el amor de Dios and Un Sueño
en la floresta. Segovia never played any Mangore although he
greatly admired the Paraguayan composer whom he met in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
He took a dedicated copy of La Catedral which he promised he would
play and record...but never did...the reasons are almost too obvious...they
call for sinful speculations.
a mandolin type of effect which requires a specific kind of preparation
from the student. It delivers the sensation of polyphony and stereophony
to its fullest since the listener is often fooled in believing that actually
two instruments are being performed simultaneously.
The story goes like this: July 2nd 1944
in San Salvador teaching a lesson when, suddenly, someone knocks at the
door. Barrios opens the door and an old lady with her arm stretching forwards
tells him "Una Limosna por el amor de Dios" -"An alm for the love of God"-
Mangore gave the lady a few coins and then went back to his student with
a smile on his face. Looked at him and told him: "I am working on a new
piece and I know what I will do with it...I will incorporate the knocking
at the door in the piece"... Barrios died on August 7th 1944
and left the piece finished but without a title. When the student that
was with him told this story, the piece was called "Una limosna por el
amor de Dios"...for being Mangore's last composition it is often called
"El Ultimo Canto" -The last song-
